Overview

Make training fun, engaging, and rewarding with this powerful and readily available technology!

Video and DVD clips give participants an opportunity to explore values and ideas, learn about one another, and, in the process, build a stronger learning community. Energizing Staff Development Using Film Clips is a collection of film and television clips that staff developers can use to encourage discussion and reflection on pertinent, common themes, including courage, communication, change, conflict, creativity, and leadership. Each chapter includes real-life examples of how clips may be used in staff development settings, quotes for extending thinking and discussion, and articles and books that relate to the chapter theme.
Each film clip section includes:

  • A synopsis of the scene
  • An explanation of critical themes
  • Start and stop times
  • The length of the clip
  • Suggested discussion questions
  • Contexts for use

These stimulating, instructive film clips lead to helpful conversations, create positive plans of action, and promote learning through reflection. Whether planning a team meeting, a faculty meeting, or a training program, leaders and organizations will find a clip to generate conversations about many of the most pressing issues in education.

Editorial Reviews

Ruby Payne

"One of the fastest ways to provide an understanding is through a story or a visual. Film clips do both. This book is an invaluable aid to any staff developer who wants to captivate an audience and teach at the same time."

Arthur L. Costa
"Teachers, staff developers, and presenters who are eager to make their productions more engaging, vibrant, and memorable, will find this collection invaluable. Because our metaphorical minds learn through finding patterns, relationships and analogies, the use of film clips to illuminate such elusive but enduring values as persistence, courage, empathy, creativity, and hope can accelerate their meanings more powerfully than any lecture, definition, or description."
Sara L. Gjerdrum
"You can only bring forth that which you can imagine, and this book allows people to imagine together through the power of film. By seeing different ways of behaving, interacting, responding, and being, people consider new ways of being for themselves and how this could change their world."
Jennifer York-Barr
"This exceptionally well-organized, user-friendly resource is sure to be among the most well used in the tool kit of every teacher, principal, and staff developer. Without a doubt, the video clips will elicit compelling learning conversations in faculty meetings, workshops, coursework, and all other professional settings. This resource will be invaluable in my own teaching."
Psyc CRITIQUES: Contemporary Psychology
"Energizing Staff Development Using Film Clips provides a handy reference manual for workshop leaders interested in enriching and diversifying their learning sessions on values and ethics. "
